Re: Best Deer Caliber out to 1K

Yo Butch!! Wassup??

Yup I talked to Steve we talk about everyday.. he said your gonna e-mail but ...

I never got your e-mails .. I'l send you one to this addy...
keenvisionvideo@suscom.net sound good???

You just make the decision for the "green light" and I'll show you a group that sucks.. [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

DC,

not sure where you got $3000 or $3500 for my rifle??
The basic Tacticals go for $2100 to $2800 depending on options...

here's a BASIC list and prices may vary...

Rings 145
bases 135
Bottom metal 290
Barrel 350
break 125
stock 425
teflon finish 250
fluting 110
bolt knob 95
jewel 245
recoil lug 25

now again this is ballpark and rounded numbers. You're at about 1200.... plus you have to inlet and bed the action bearrel etc... plus the gunsmiths fees....

I didn't include scope price ....

what is so outrageous about that???

Re: Best Deer Caliber out to 1K

Boy, you guys don't quit, do you???
I'm also wondering where the $3500 figure came from....
I have several tactical style rifles and I don't have that in any of them WITH the NXS scopes, and Badger bases and rings. If you figure that an NXS, and Badger metal will run +/- $1400, then that puts the finished rifle's cost in the $1800 range.

That stuff there is $2100 + so CM is giving us a hell of a deal on his work, considering a finished rifle minus the scope is running in the $2100 range. When you break it down, that price tag doesn't seem so high...
BTW, my .300 Tommy was built by YOUR smith, Darryl(Ray Romain) and JUST the barrel, brake,dies, and gunsmith work was OVER $1000... If you add the Action, Jewell trigger, Stock, etc., you'll see that your guy actuall charges MORE than CM...Remember guys, it doesn't count if your buddy does the work and doesn't charge you.. You have to figure what he WOULD have charged if you were a stranger...

Re: Best Deer Caliber out to 1K

I'm not one to get into a ******* contest but I think that the term "hunting rifle" covers a huge area , I know a few guys that have full out bench guns , polished steel and hot pink stocks and all and they call them "hunting rifles".

Now to realy kick a bees nest

I have a rig that is less than $900 total scope and all that would take deer cleanly out to 1K , yea its a Savage !! and wears a B&L scope to boot!
Do you need a $3000 rig to shoot 1K , hell no , the chances of getting one of doing it consistantly are a hell of alot better if you pay for all the good stuff but it can be done for less.

Personaly I feel that as long as you can get a rig that shoots at least 3/4moa and has the energy , you can kill at 1000yds.
Hell I've got a soda straw barreled 1961 Weatherby Mark V in 300Wby that shoots near 1/2MOA with factroy weatherby ammo , I'm sure if you replaced the old Balvar scope with some bigger better glass that it'll kill easly at 1K , for at least 2 shots and the barrel gets hot.

What it all boils down to is the man asked a simple question about calibers
"best deer caliber out to 1K" , not what rifle , what smith to build it but what caliber..
So why all the mines better than yours and you payed to much BS?
